    The secret of the beauty of torrefied wood is of course the torrefaction treatment itself. This technique involves heating the wood at very high temperatures in a customized dryer room. Practically free of moisture, the wood then becomes more stable, more durable and resistant to deterioration. It is also insect resistant!

    At the end of the heating process, the boards have a rich, golden color.

    Torrefied wood is a great alternative to exotic wood.

    And it sounds pretty darn AMAZING !!

    New guitars sound like vintage instruments.
